Visit to Lyme was inspired by and named after a beautiful and important portion of Jane Austen's Persuasion. Anne Elliot, Captain Wentworth, and several others go for a visit to the seaside at Lyme. It is a turning point in the novel. In addition to the book (of course), the 1995 BBC adaptation is fantastic, including the portion that provided the inspiration for this colorway.
This Splashed and Speckled colorway include several shades of blues and greens as well as a little bit of white.
I dyed it on Squiggle Sock, which is such a fun yarn base made with superwash merino spun in a spiral around a nylon core and with little beehives or slubs every couple feet.
